Sure, you want your car to look good – who doesn’t? But spending more money ‘pimping your ride’ than you spent on the actual car or van, it could be argued is just a bit foolish. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t worthwhile or that you won’t get a lot of enjoyment out of it of course. So, if you want to make your car look more flash, but you don’t want to spend silly money doing so, why not check out these affordable ways to pimp your ride?
For around £150 you can purchase a conversion kit that will turn your boring old headlights into your own road-based light show. You can pick up HID bulbs in a range of colours, including purple, blue and white and they are a very cost effective ways to pimp your ride.
Another great way to make your car cooler using the lights is to use LED lights to illuminate your vehicle’s logo. This can be done for a couple of hundred dollars, and it looks great, especially if your car is a top brand like BMW.
Bling your tyres
Another great way to make your vehicle look more impressive is by adding alloy wheels. You can buy BMW alloy wheels for as little as £360, which means that alloys for less expensive cars are even more affordable, and the sparkling silver shine they will give your wheels is enough to make your car one of the most impressive on the road. Just be careful pedestrians don’t fall in your path after being dazzled by your new wheels.
A new knob
What could be more impressive than a shiny new knob? Knobs might be small, but they get your noticed, so replace e your dull, average knob with a colourful customised one in the shape of a skull, diamond or even a Pokémon ball if you want to play it nerdy, for as little as £15 and give your car’s interior a cool boost.
A stunning steering wheel
Most steering wheels are basic black and boring. If you want your car to stand out from the rest, for just a few pounds, you can replace your standard steering wheel with one that looks more like it belongs in a professional race car or in a Wacky Races cartoon than it does on the roads of Milton Keynes or London.
People have tattoos, so why not cars? Sure, a car that’s covered in decals tends to look completely tacky, but if you can find high-quality decals and use them sparingly, you can easily enhance the look of your vehicle at a fraction of the price a brand new paint job would set you back.
If your seat covers are dull grey, black or blue, why not pimp them using seat covers, which can be purchased for around £25 per pair? They’ll add some colour and personality to the interior and ensure that your vehicle doesn’t look just like all the rest.
